Per ST- "Sustained, balancy, and powerful". Unique and improbable movement. 5.11 climbing at third bolt. Crux move at fourth bolt requires dynamic movement to a gaston finger lock in horizontal roof crack. 5.10 to the chains.
Starts off big shelf to the left of Steppin' Stone. Goes through obvious bulge and roof combo. Finishes on same anchor as Steppin' Stone.
Trad pro .6 to 1.5" plus 6 bolts. Can clip first bolt by going high on starting shelf - then can continue from there of step back down to start climbing directly beneath the bolt.

Route is rated 11d and depends a bit on reach at crux. Option gear is not optional unless very bold and up to 1.5 inch

The dyno to a gaston fingerlock move was much harder than 5.11 for me as an average height person. There are no feet for that move as well, so being stronger wouldn't even help much. It's all about reach. The climbing up to that point is already in the 5.11+ range. Cool route! I'll try it again once I grow a few inches.

Killer route, Aiden. I'd say the lower half is low 11/10+ until the gaston fingerlock move. As for that, the move is very doable at average height in my opinion. I am 5'10" and had no problems. Sure, it's a bit hard, and I would give it 11d, but my 5'3" girlfriend was consistently within 1 inch of a solid lock. Overall great route, and don't get scared of the reach! Thanks for the addition, Aiden.
